East to West

Having moved to Christchurch, NZ to work on the earthquake repair I bought a car to get my tools to work only to find I can leave them locked up on site.

So with a great summer upon us I quickly sold the car and bought a Honda Dominator in good nick for about £750. Last weekend I went on a shakedown ride from east to west and back in one day. 600km of some of the best roads and views I have come across.

The dominator more than kept up with the other bikes, especially on the mountain hairpins. To say I'm happy about moving here is an understatement!
